Full description
After breakfast at your hotel, depart to the largest salty depression in Africa, Chott el Jerid, which means “Lagoon of the Land of Palms.” Stop and visit this salt desert located at the foot of the Saharan Atlas mountains where, according to legend, whole caravans disappeared forever. Admire the salt landscape extending as far as the eye can see and be on the lookout for a Fata Morgana mirage, the optical phenomenon that marks the salt depression. Enjoy free time to take photos and soak in the atmosphere of this place. Next, continue to "Debebcha," a place on the edge of the salt lake with a unique landscape of petrified sand. From here, head to the hot geothermal spring and discover the water cooling system used to irrigate most Saharan oases in the region. The tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.
